Colin MacLeod, the immortal Scottish Highlander, travels with the wise-cracking ghost Amergan in search of the immortal despot Marcus Octavius, who killed Colin's lover on the Celtic plains centuries earlier. The once great city of New York is now submerged under water, with only one dominant fortress towering over the sea, the fortress of Marcus Octavius. MacLeod is torn between saving the survivors of New York and hunting down his nemesis.

This is about the most american anime I have ever seen in my entire life. It's so disgustingly terrible. There were a couple reasons I watched this title. The first, and biggest reason, was that I saw this as I was browsing amazon. It got some nice reviews so I thought to myself "hey, I should watch and then buy this." Now I've seen two highlander movies and a good portion of the TV series and I can honestly say that this is the worst Highlander creation I've ever seen.

Im no Highlander fan, Im just a geek... I've never been interested in Highlander as a franchise,...let's just get it on.

The story was pretty fair, there were no breath taking action sequences but even tho, it was enjoyful. It moves from the future to the past and back... simply to bring a little bit of complication in to it. Its all about revenge and hate , and anger, and how you cant win if those feelings are leading your way kinda thing. Im sure you know what I mean since weve seen it before...

The Animation is really great, everyone will enjoy the animations and read more

As a big fan of the Highlander franchise, the first film and the tv series, and not the sucky movie sequels, I had really high hopes for this film. When you consider it was directed by Yoshiaki Kawajiri (who as you know directed such classics as Ninja Scroll and Vampire D bloodlust) and the script was penned by one of the writers of the tv series, then I feel I was warranted in expecting a great film. Not to mention that Imagi and Madhouse did the animation.
Unfortunately for me the Search For Vengeance was a bit hit and miss for me. While it ticks read more

I'll be honest and say I never thought the Highlander series had its own anime movie and I recently got into the series when I turn 20 since I watch the first movie and bit of the TV series; both cartoon and live action, still planning to watch the rest, even the sequels.
I found the movie in my local 'nerd store', I didn't think it was real until I did some research and I decide to give it a watch, and I really enjoy the movie so much.

-The story is a basic revenge plot, with a war going on as main character enter the town read more
